#EarthDay: Commonly known as the ‘baobab’ tree, the incredibly tall and phenomenally impressive adansonia is a genus of eight species of tree, six native to Madagascar, one native to mainland Africa and the Arabian Peninsula and one to Australia. The mainland African species also occurs on Madagascar, but it is not a native of that island.

Adansonias reach heights of 5 to 30 metres (16 to 98 ft) and have trunk diameters of 7 to 11 metres (23 to 36 ft). Glencoe baobab – an African baobab specimen in Limpopo Province, South Africa, often considered the largest example alive – up to recent times had a circumference of 47 metres (154 ft).

Its diameter is estimated at about 15.9 metres (52 ft). Recently the tree split up into two parts and it is possible that the stoutest tree now is Sunland baobab, also in South Africa. The diameter of this tree is 10.64 m, with an approximate circumference of 33.4 metres.

Some baobabs are reputed to be many thousands of years old, which is difficult to verify, as the wood does not produce annual growth rings, though radiocarbon dating may be able to provide age data.

Baobabs store water inside the swollen trunk (up to 120,000 litres / 32,000 US gallons) to endure the harsh drought conditions particular to each region. All occur in seasonally arid areas, and are deciduous, shedding their leaves during the dry season.

The leaves are commonly used as a leaf vegetable throughout the area of mainland African distribution, including Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and the Sahel. They are eaten both fresh and as a dry powder. In Northern Nigeria, the leaves are locally known as kuka(Hausa), and are used to make Kuka soup (Miyan kuka).

The fruit has a velvety shell and is about the size of a coconut, weighing about 1.44 kilograms (3.2 lb). It has an acidic, tart flavor, described as ‘somewhere between grapefruit, pear, and vanilla’.

The dried fruit powder contains about 12% water and various nutrients, including carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, potassium and iron.

In Zimbabwe, the fruit is known as mawuyu in the Shona language and has long been a traditional fruit. According to one source, locals “ate the fruit fresh or crushed the crumbly pulp to stir into porridge and drinks”. Malawi women have already set up commercial ventures earning their children’s school fees for their harvesting work.

Jesse Boykins III - True Artistry & Friendship

Today my good brother, and I say this with 100% seriousness as I only have one biological brother with the other being Jesse Boykins III releases his album Love Apparatus. I found it necessary to give my 2 cents on Jesse, as a musician but also just as a ride or die friend. In this industry it may be difficult to find true friends who support your personal growth but also your creative growth.

Even with me towering over him several feet aha, I have always and still consider Jesse my older brother. We both met when I was 18 years old, and I thought I had the world figured out but you can count on Jesse to tell you how he feels 100% even if you don’t want to hear it. He would give me advice on Street Etiquette back in the early days when I was still under my parents roof, and I would be like “Man.. stick to music, this is style/fashion ha” but everything he told me literally opened my mind.

He has always been about the mission being more than music, and it’s the same I felt about fashion, those things just being a catalyst to lure/excite people in.

Now fast forward 5/6 years he releases this masterpiece of an album, produced by Machine Drum called Love Apparatus. To keep in mind he has been working on this album before the alternative downtempo R&B wave existed, now it’s super popular and the tracks off of Love App still sound before their time.

Didn’t mean to scribe bromantic letters first thing in the morning ha, but I really wanted people to know I wouldn’t be where I’m at right now if it wasn’t for my brother Jesse Boykins III. So yeah , go download/buy that record just listen to it
